Reset by contribution engineduring routine cleanup. Another worker will pick up soon.

I've been getting that error (?) message every time I check my most recent upload for the past few days now. What's up with that? Is there something I can be doing to make it not happen? Is it likely to quit happening any time soon? I checked Where Am I In Line, and it seems I'm not the only one experiencing this event.

there is a batch of about ~20 shows that are stuck in the contribution engine with that message. the CE was broken and those shows fell into a loop and aren't getting kicked on to the next process like they should be. ... we are aware of the problem and it should be fixed soon. thanks!

Help! I am stuck in the loop!

http://www.archive.org/audio/etree-details-db.php?id=30723

Did I change the name of something at the wrong time? can I change something back? I deleted the META DATA files, did I screw up things worse? I never can seem to understand why the CR resets . . . it always seems like my error though. . :-\

I've got a couple shows stuck at this point too.

It's been a couple days, but over the weekend I'm not expecting too much from the voulenteers.

Hey Brad.

Here's the details on the 3 shows I've got in the works:

1. http://www.archive.org/audio/etree-details-db.php?id=25445 was uploaded/imported on Thursday. Reset by contribution engine. Still waiting.

2. http://www.archive.org/audio/etree-details-db.php?id=25469 Uploaded/imported Saturday. Reset by contribution engine. Still waiting.

3. http://www.archive.org/audio/etree-details-db.php?id=25503 Uploaded/imported Sunday. Waiting for curator (so I figure the CE was fixed by the time I imported it since it is not stuck in the same spot as the others.

Thanks as always for all the hard work to the entire archive crew.

Can you log in to audio-uploads and see if the show folder and all files are still there? If they are not there, yes - you will need to reupload.

nothing is there, so it looks like I'll have to re-upload tonight. when I go to import the show again (after it finishes re-uploading, or course), do I just import as normal? does the first import have to be deleted? what exactly happens?

Argh... I logged in and took a look inside your upload directory and I see 1 folder:

GM2005-03-23.LSD2.FLAC16

So it looks like items 1 and 2 from the list above need to be re-uploaded Jason. I was right, something happened on Saturday night/Sunday evening that caused some loss of data on the upload server. I am now deleting items 1 and 2 above - please import them again once you upload the files.

Real sorry...

Crap.

Guess that's what I'll have to do.

Serves me right for uploading when I knew there were problems going on.

It may be too late. As I recall, the last time something like this happened, there were several shows that ended up getting deleted because the contribution engine decided they were too old, even though it was bugs in the contribution engine that caused them to sit around. And, as I recall, the symptoms were exactly the same. No datafiles meant the show kept getting "reset" by the contribution engine.

Anyway, the thing to do at this point is probably to wait and see what happens. But if I were in your shoes, I'd be getting ready to do a re-upload. Maybe (hopefully) I'm just being pessimistic - we'll see.

This is set to happen after 30 days, I find it hard to believe all 20 or so of these have been idle for that long (most users email us after a day or 2 of that). If the files are gone, something else happened.

However, like you said, we'll see...

Ah, ok, good to know that sometimes my paranoia is just paranoia. :) However, I did notice that at least one show came through the weekend with no files left, and somehow still got installed:

http://www.archive.org/audio/etree-details-db.php?id=25464

So I hope you can understand why I might have been leaping to conclusions.

The file metadata for this show points to filenames that no longer exist. I just filled out the form again (File Options), the download links for the files will appear as soon as the system picks it up again.

Thanks Brad. I renamed the file in all caps, GUPL and I'll hope that works.

thanks for the quick response guys. I was pretty excited when I just checked - the server said it was verifying metadata blahblahblah, but then, alas, it dropped my show again. Dang! here's the link, just in case it helps my cause:
http://www.archive.org/details-db.php?mediatype=etree&identifier=GUPL2005-05-07.flac16

The show was imported with a foldername of:

GUPL2005-05-07.flac16

However, the folder in your upload directory reads:

gupl2005-05-07.flac16

So it looks like you renamed the folder after importing it. Since this is case sensitive, you will need to rename it back to the original before the CE will see the files and pick it up again.

Arg, I probably confused you on the fileset prefix Molly, in our emails. Just *before* importing, the case doesn't matter (gupl vs GUPL, both will be initially detected even if the band's abbrev is listed as just gupl). But *after* you take that first "import" step and go through the rest of the process, the case does matter and can't change.

All these weird little things you hope people won't run into, and then they do, eh? Forgot about this little one. :/
